(PRWeb UK) March 18, 2010
IT247, one of the leading suppliers of online high-end technology, has added another world-beater to its catalogue of top tech. The Kingston Data Traveler 310 USB flash drive is one powerful little flash drive, featuring a massive 256GB of memory, more than any other flash drive on the market.
A hard drive in your pocket
Only slightly bigger than a normal USB flash drive, the Kingston Data Traveler’s massive storage capacity is capable of storing up to 52 DVDs or more than 51,000 J-pegs, freeing up your laptop or PC’s hard drive if you’re a film lover or an avid photographer. And not only does it have plenty of storage space – it’s fast too. Data transfer times are impressive for a small flash drive like the Data Traveler, with rates of 25MB/sec for read and 12MB/sec for write. The drive is also password protected, to ensure that data is kept secure and safe from prying eyes. “USB drives are nothing new, but the Data Traveler really sets a new benchmark for high-capacity USB flash drives,” says Adam Pratt, Peripherals, Components & Software Category Manager of IT247. “Although it’s more expensive than many of the other high-capacity drives, there’s no doubt that none of the rivals can match it for sheer performance and space. It’s like carrying a hard drive around in your pocket,” he says.
Perfect for movie lovers
With movie downloads a growing industry, this flash drive is a perfect solution for those who want to keep their films in one place and easily accessible, but don’t want to clog up their laptop’s memory with large data files. “As people use media files more and more, flash drives with a high storage capacity and fast read/write speeds are going to be more in demand,” says Adam. “The fact that you can store that much data on one, simple to use USB drive is its major selling point, and anyone who is serious about their technology can’t fail to be impressed by the numbers,” he adds.
The Kingston Data Traveler 310 doesn’t come cheap, but it has the added advantage of password protection, a five-year guarantee and 24/7 technical support. It will work with almost all operating systems including Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Apple MacOS X 10.3.x, Microsoft Windows 7, Linux 2.6.x or later and Microsoft Windows Vista.
